Approaches to addressing issues | Article writing homework help

compass icon-01.png Overview:

As we turn this week towards our final writing project of addressing issues through a research-based essay, one important first step is to read and evaluate different ways that writers choose to address issues. You will read several different kinds of arguments that address issues in different ways: response, evaluation, cause/effect, proposal, and explaining/extending. While you are reading, think about how each  of these approaches to addressing arguments might be useful to you in writing your research essay.  

Note: for whichever of these approaches to addressing issues you find useful, look to the appropriate chapter for more example essays and strategies for writing.
